At The Midland we have created a Vintage Cocktail Pinterest board full of vintage wedding inspiration to get your creativity flowing. Here are some of our favourite cocktails…

1. The White Lady

The White Lady? A no-brainer for a bride’s signature drink! White Lady is light and fresh, blending the subtle botanicals of gin with the sweetness of Cointreau and the tartness of lemon juice.

4. Mint Julep

This refreshing classic cocktail is said to probably have been created sometime during the 1700s. It originated as a medicinal beverage and was once made with a gin base instead of bourbon.

6. Ooh la la!

Take your champagne toast to the next level with a French 75 instead!

Combine the Gin, St. Germain, lemon juice and syrup, shake with ice, and pour into a chilled cocktail glass or champagne coupe. Top with the champagne – pour it slowly over the back of a spoon to get a great layered effect.
